Hearing delayed for burglary suspect

Court appearances for a man accused of trying to rob a Craig liquor store were delayed Tuesday in Moffat County Court.

He was slated to appear Tuesday before Judge Mary Lynne James, but the cases were continued until Sept. 26.

Prosecutor Russell Wasley said Siquerios is searching for a new attorney to represent him in the cases.

A hearing for Trixie Rae Albaugh, who is charged with meth possession and distribution, was scheduled to appear Wednesday before Chief Judge Michael O'Hara, but the case was continued.

Albaugh has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
